KXD(8) System Manager's Manual KXD(8)

NAME

kxdsecurely forward X conections

SYNOPSIS

kxd [-t] [-i] [-p port]

DESCRIPTION

This is the daemon for kx.
Options supported by kxd:
-t
TCP. Normally kxd will only listen for X connections on a UNIX socket, but some machines (for example, Cray) have X libraries that are not able to use UNIX sockets and thus you need to use TCP to talk to the pseudo-xserver created by kxd. This option decreases the security significantly and should only be used when it is necessary and you have considered the consequences of doing so.
-i
Interactive. Do not expect to be started by inetd, but allocate and listen to the socket yourself. Handy for testing and debugging.
-p
Port. Listen on the port port. Only usable with -i.

EXAMPLES

Put the following in /etc/inetd.conf:
kx	stream	tcp	nowait	root	/usr/athena/libexec/kxd	kxd
